Lost Voices of Hagia Sophia: This is how the chants in Hagia Sophia were heard before 1.000 years - Stanford Research (videos)

After many years of research, Stanford University revived the way Hagia Sophia was heard before 1.000 years……..

The university team studied the architecture of Hagia Sophia, Byzantine history and music and in collaboration with the famous Cappella Romana revived the way chants were heard in Hagia Sophia.

Η Bissera Pentcheva, who teaches at the Stanford Department of Medieval Studies and continues to do so to this day, notes that this experience gives the incredible opportunity to present a research as an aesthetic act. The study and application was done by the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics of the University. The focus is on the majestic gap beneath the dome, says Pentcheva. "Hagia Sophia brings us in contact with a paradox: the combination of blurred semiotics produced by the sound field and the catalysis of the form caused by light and reflections, implying that divine knowledge can only be perceived partially and vaguely ".

The cavernous acoustics, but also the unique light that enters and penetrates the space as in no other building co-shape the result of the sound and experiential experience, as seen in a video uploaded by the University. The way the sound rests on the marble surfaces and bounces determines this unique sound. The way the voice is reproduced, which somehow expands, reflects the metaphysics of space, say those who participated in this great research. Another researcher comments that one way to understand the acoustics of Hagia Sophia was to blow up a balloon inside the temple. Digital technology is the only way to listen, to experience that experience even through simulation.
